Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday, on Thursday, turned out to be a joyous occasion not only for the actor but also for thieves, who targeted the scores of fans that thronged the star’s bungalow in Bandra. Acting on complaints from fans who had fallen victim to sticky fingers, the Bandra police on Friday registered around 30 cases of missing cell phones and wallets.
The police is questioning repeat offenders in the vicinity, but is yet to zero in on the culprits.
Like last year, the actor ushered in his birthday at his Alibaug farmhouse with close friends and industry bigwigs. However, ignorant of this fact, Khan’s fans had been waiting outside his residence ‘Mannat’ since late Wednesday night.
Awareness about the thefts, however, dawned on the crowds shortly after a black sedan had entered Mannat’s premises. Wanting to get a glimpse of the star, the fans had rushed to the gates. However, as soon as it was established that it was a false alarm, people started shouting that their phones and wallets were missing.
